Deni & Aleksandra can’t wait to welcome you to Croatia!
Captain Deni grew up in continental Croatia, Zagreb. A restless spirit with an early passion for travel, he went to the US to study Psychology and Sociology and then worked in the US, Portugal, and Bulgaria. Upon his return to Croatia, he attended the Skipper’s Academy and has stuck with sailing ever since, first as the flotilla skipper for 3 years, then advancing to Skippered and Crewed charter. According to his own words, the best part about being onboard the whole time is the freedom to be in various places in a short space of time. As captain, he has to adapt and calculate the guests’ wishes, wind, and weather conditions, so it is always a challenge to maintain a balance, so there is never a dull moment while on the water. Besides sailing, Deni enjoys staying active by lifting weights, doing calisthenics, skateboarding, surfing, bodysurfing, bodyboarding, freediving, swimming, biking, and sometimes running.
Chef Aleksandra is a kind and gentle person, always trying her best. She originally graduated from trade school, then moved into the insurance industry. At this time, she was also involved in her family business, where she gained experience working in the bar, making cocktails, and serving delicious food. She then joined the Moorings sister company, where she worked as a flotilla hostess for five seasons. During this time, she was responsible for booking restaurants, organising ports, excursions, medical care, wine tasting, sightseeing, and all other duties to make sure the guests were taken care of and had a good charter. She has now progressed to a position with The Moorings and looks forward to showing guests a unique but amazing experience on the water.
